1965 Penny Hutchins
I was at Mayfield from September 1960 until July 1965. The last year there the school trip was to Remagan in Germany, does anyone else remember it. I have a picture that I will have to get scanned and send in. The last year my Form Mistress was Ms J. Butler.
Yes I remember the trip. I also have pictures. I remember the endless walks, and the “strange” food. I also remember buying lots of rolls of Polo’s for the trip.
I was unable to go on the Germany trip as I had glandular fever and my friend Janet Martin also didn’t go as she had been in hospital having her appendix out at that time. I remember the trip to Wales though when I believe we were in the second year. Among the the teachers who came with us were Miss Davies and Mrs Summers. I remember going to one of your birthday parties, I believe your dad was in the police force. Not sure that you will remember me as I wasn’t good at sports so not in any of the teams. Remember Sheila in the hockey photo, but cannot remember if her surname was Turner.
Yes I do remember you from school, we were friends I remember that. The trip to Wales is a vague memory. I think there were bunk beds and if I am right I was going out with a boy called Fred. I have some pics of the German trip, maybe if I can get them on here you might recognise and give some names. I live in Spain now with my husband. We have been here for eleven years and love it. It would be nice to keep in touch.
Yes I remember the trip well. I’m not sure if any of my photos have survived unfortunately but I will have a good look. Sheila’s surname was Turner. I have a photo taken of some of us on 22 July 1965 and will try and scan it successfully and place on the site.
Hi Christine was good to hear from you. I am coming to the UK on Thursday for 10 days, but when I get back will scan the photos I have of the trip to Germany. If my memory is not playing tricks on me I have one of you giving me a piggy back. I remember we had a good time.
